Exclusive: Richard Dreyfuss Joins Parenthood

Mr. Holland is headed to Parenthood!

Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss is joining NBC’s sublime family drama for a multi-episode arc, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Renewal Scorecard: Will Parenthood Be Back Next Season?

The star of The Goodbye Girl and Mr. Holland’s Opus will appear in this season’s final four episodes as Gilliam T. Blount, a once-great theater producer who also happens to be an old friend of Zeek’s (Craig T. Nelson). Blount is looking to stage a comeback, which makes me think Jasmine (Joy Bryant) will somehow be involved.

Dreyfuss is coming off a recurring gig on Showtime’s Weeds, where he played Nancy’s adoring Math teacher.
